Yes toucan!



Ode to sugar

Do you remember Super Golden Crisp cereal?

Gerry Matthews was the voice of Sugar Bear, who always sounded like Dean Martin to me.  (I think that was the point.)

Alas, Super Golden Crisp is no more.  Neither is Berry Berry Kix.  Or Cabbage Patch Kids cereal, E.T. cereal or New Kids on the Block cereal.

Even Smurf Berry Crunch is long gone, although the upcoming live-action movie may give it new life.  (Hope the rub-on tats come back, too!)

Commercials in Saturday morning cartoons made us simply have to have each and every one of them…for a little while, at least.

And now they’re gone.

Which sugary classic do you miss the most?

Me?  I was always been a huge fan of Froot Loops.  And Frosted Flakes.  And Captain Crunch.  Sugary, sugary goodness that requires no milk — it’s an all-day treat in my book.

But, alas, while my favorites are still available on the shelf, I pass them over (most of the time) for more healthy choices.

Bran. Whole grains.  Sucks being a grownup.

At least we can still enjoy the cartoons…am I right?
